Track Name: Vicegrip
My motivation crippled imitation and made it obsolete to the point of elimination
When demons are screaming inside of your head, imprision those visions and see that they’re dead
Take what you earn, only reap what you sow
Humble yourself to yourself and you’ll know
Know what you are and know what you lack
Knowing yourself only tightens the grip we have on the level in which we exist
Reality, foundation
Vitality, manifestation
Morality, compassion
Polarity, true education
This is merely an option
Either choose or refuse to grip like a vise upon your potential
The difference you make is in you
My one confession regards the idle sessions
The time of day I throw away : a wasted life, a lesson
Living today like the day lived before
Steadily sliding away from the score
Take what you earn, only reap what you sow
Humble yourself to yourself and you’ll know
Know what you are and know what you lack
Knowing yourself only tightens the grip, the ground that you post on to hinder the slip
Reality, foundation
Vitality, manifestation
Morality, compassion
Polarity
This is merely an option
Either choose or refuse to grip like a vise upon your potential
The difference you make is in you
Track Name: King Hell
The bloated bodies of their beloved will peel their lids to the light
The revered stories of the battlefield should push the kids to join the fight
Oh, God, it's so contagious
Another masterpiece in murder
Another blasphemy to brand our species evil

Run the gauntlet of hate
Leave your mind in decay
Bathe in gore every day
Determine righteousness' way

I will not find you on the shore, but in the ocean we abhor

Putrefaction of an ideal abandoned in the lust for blood
Erecting monuments to King Hell
Mocking skies threatening to flood
Human confetti for the formal
Raise your glass and make a toast and tip it back and drink it

Run the gauntlet of hate
Leave your mind in decay
Bathe in gore every day
Determine righteousness' way
Run the gauntlet of hate
Leave your mind in decay
Bathe in gore every day
Abandon righteousness' way

The dawn of reason manifested will mark the ending of a reign
The operatives remembering faces, no longer pieces in a game

I will not find you on the shore, but in the ocean we abhor
Devoid of light, stuck in the deep, and you forever shall it keep
Track Name: Dark Prophet
An empire living in the shadow of a fallen way
A message of a new beginning in the prophet's vision
Words of insanity leak to the public
Dark gatherings of the blackened mind
Rotting in the fields of their final enlightenment

Race for extinction to proclaim the reign of a new God:
The last person alive

Awake, arise, escape annihilation

And the fabric of reality has been torn apart and resown
by the hands of a madman, and existence will become his own

Countries crumble and civilizations fall in a world of murder competing for it all
Breeding a God in the blood of his own kind
Constructing a psychopath whose vision will dictate existence

Awake, arise, and master annihilation

And the fabric of reality has been torn apart and resown
by the hands of a madman, and existence will reflect his own

Do I embrace this nightmare perseverance?
Tear away my soft humanity?
Engage this darkened evolution?
Relinquish every hope of coming back?
Track Name: Self-Destruct Anew
Step up to embrace a light
Shed yourself of worldly fear
Breathe in an air of a freedom unknown
Embrace the arrival of long-absent virtue

The tool of domination, assimilation
Your mind; a product of corrupt indoctrination
Consumption fills attention to block the truth, creating adults with minds of dependent youth
Freedom? Freedom can't be given, for what is given can be taken away
Fear? Fear; chains that bind you
Leave it behind you to find another way

I fought the slow lobotomy, educated myself through their own guise
Learned their techniques
I know how they speak
Once poisoned, your eyes work against you to cripple your mind

They create your wants
Their greed holds no bounds

Freedom? Freedom can't be given, for what is given can be taken away
Fear? Fear; chains that bind you
Leave it behind you to find a better way

The world through perspectives of hate kept me up late in the night
Rush out to buy what will save you from harm
'Til the sun casts a shadow you're safe in your defeated day

Their greed holds your wants
They create your bounds

My mind locked up like I'm never gonna see the light,
or set this up and tell the truth to all without a fight
They'd put the squeeze on everybody's hearts
and have the public masses fiending for some body parts

So it goes that greed hinders the will of man
Undoubtedly, the brainwashed masses just won't understand
They're situated to never come unglued from that box your family stares at in the living room

We need to self-destruct anew
Self-destruct anew
Track Name: Power of the Day
A step in the right direction
Shame not realized ascension
Boarding a slow endeavor
One million ties to sever

Drop the anchors to the floor
Release the chains to head for shore
Shackles of habit left to rust
Only freedom rising
Leave the anchors on the floor

Free myself of Samskara
I'll push myself to no extreme to realize tomorrow
A waking mind stirred from a dream

Go

Extra-cerebral restlessness
Rapid-eye-movement evident

Mine is the story of fire
The revolution of the soul
Alive in claiming my birthright from the dead
Awake in seeking the escape from the realm of guilt and fear

Make it burn / Feel it flow / Blaze inside / Make it so
Gather your forces and go / Go / Make it so
Light a fire / Blaze inside / Yeah
Harbor the indefatigable
Make it burn

Mine is the glory of sky
The constant motion of the tide
Every pattern in movement recognized when you're alert to the cycle
Reborn! Revived! Awake! Alive!

The day is yours to seek or to be found
It's now or never to end this shallow cycle
Push to awaken the forces inside of me,
and may the deeds of the flesh remain secondary
to take a place at the vanguard of every worthy revolution

Like a bird to the wind
Like a fish to water
Like the lightning in the sky
Just throw yourself to the moment that is now

Can't you see what this can be?

Grab a hold
Make it so
Let it go
Track Name: Pax Americana
Heaven's discontent is the scourge of the lesser-being, for they hold no worth
Utterly obliterated are the proletariat if they crowd heaven's berth
When lands of wealth are crowded by the people of a lower caste, the Gods say unto us
"Vini, vidi, vici. Pax Americana."

The pastime you adore. Your power's vital core. War.
It's what the cause is for, now and forever more. War.

Heaven's mounting fear is the rise of the lesser-being. They must not succeed
The smashing of the pedestal which holds one nation over God would mean heaven's defeat
when heaven's but a place on Earth, a grand delusion, a desperate state of mind
See their sacred money ceremony bomb-intrusion Armeggedon staged and self-inflicted on their property and to their own kind

The pastime you adore. Your power's vital core. War.
It's what the cause is for, now and forever more. War.
Blood-money driven whore, it's time to ship the poor to war.
Parading trophy gore, making sure we can't ignore the war.

Your Gods will give you many reasons to give yourself to the machine
This human engine feeds delusion, and fabricates a hallowed scene
A sickness sweeps the minds of many. A blackness strikes the fighter's heart
Led from the pasture to the shadows where demons tear the sheep apart

Ares! We emulate with such respect!
Ares! Deliver forth what we expect! War!
Objectify. Deceive. Lead them on trailing from the leash.
And when they yell, don't chance a concern, or we'll tear away your life and make it burn
Suffer, little children
The smashing of the pedestal arrives, will you be left alive to rise above your darkest fear?
We'll watch our leaders try to pass the buck, too late to try to give a fuck. The reckoning is here!
The long-foretold rising of the oppressed -mistook as rantings of obsessive prophets of the street-
charge the heights where wrath is dropped, to rectify/put a stop to the mass deceit
Track Name: Shoot the Fucking Television
Wake up, work, consume, and sleep
Desert your mind
Yeah, you won't need it because thinking's dangerous
Just get up and wait to work
Consume your time with a numbness almost intravenous
Money's written out your life
Your cycle's set
You all are running mice, so blind and blissful
Get the house, the car, the wife, and that is it
Yeah, you'll be back right after this commercial break

Quick! Before it's too late! Shoot the fucking television!
Do it now and hurry up!
Don't hesitate!
Don't let it grab you and destroy your vision!
Quick! Before it's too late! Shoot the fucking television!
Do it now, and hurry up!
Don't hesitate!
Don't let it grab you and destroy your vision!

Professional liars waste your time
Professional liars run your mind
Professional liars run the machine
For without slaves, there are no masters
Track Name: Built to Break
Bated by desire, and no perversion unknown
We prostrate ourselves to it
We buy and so we are sold
We're locked in the system, and kept in check with our wants
We're baited by desire
We're so convinced with the front

Wanting an animal weakness
Dominating your existence until we fill or fall
Calibrating circumstances without looking for the missing pieces
Satisfaction through consumption
Impose progression's flaw

So you stomp your feet and you grind your teeth
just to find that need that will make you wanna give it all
Incomplete, you plant your seed
in the hollow of a rumor made of mirrors that reflects your fall


Bated by desire, and no perversion unknown
We prostrate ourselves to it
We buy and so we are sold
We're locked in the system, and kept in check with our wants
We're baited by desire
We're so convinced with the front

Longing for poisons of weakness
Using defective construction to make us need it more
Ecstasy of slow destruction; ultra-potent to our own influence
Now completely cease to function
Addict to the catalyst of your demise

So you stomp your feet and you grind your teeth
just to find that need that will make you wanna give it all
Incomplete, you plant your seed
in the hollow of a rumor made of mirrors that rejects you
Push repeat for the same deceit sold as inner peace to the masses moving in a crawl
Now a fiend who's grown obese to that very need because you took heed to the siren

All fall to the crawl call
Track Name: Lordosis
Happened again today...
A siren called me off the way
Cast the hook, and then I took the bait
And I forgot about the mission I was living for
The custom of exchange
Our interests, compliments, and names
Rate of beat starts to increase in pace
And I forget about the ends that I'd been working toward
Looking up at me...
She's giving into extacy
Free from thought, just as it ought to be
And I forget about injustice in all of the world

How can a man deny your charms once they are on his mind?
Make him bend so he will then comply with the basic weakness targeted in the male populace.
Whatever gets you high
Whatever steals your mind to make you fly
And controls all those who'd stir the tide
Who'd shake from slumber those who would stand down to corrupt dominance
A chance to let it go
Reason to free your mind from all you know you must face
Stand up, ambrace your foe in a crushing grip to crumble their deceitful monument
Track Name: Enevolergy
...
Track Name: The Pursuit
When I awoke, I beheld in the tempest the passion inside it's design
Born out of love and a determination to burn in the fire of life
Breathing in, the fire is calling
Can't you feel it calling to you?
Come wash your hands clean of yesterday
Behold, a way
The moment is now
It exists

People will speak of the deeds which unfolded, but others will follow
People will reap of the seeds that have broken ground, no longer hollow
Long after everything's reason falls apart, an honest beginning
Awaken the soul and embrace an open heart
Rise from the ashes and wreckage of yesterday

We deceive our true design, employ a false intent, destroy our inner light
to appease what we erect to our sleeping mind a master indirect
We deceive our true design, employ a false intent, destroy our inner light
to appease what we erect to our sleeping mind a master indirect

The present existence, broken and lost through time
A beckoning consummation
The opening eye

Assumption falls apart
Existence spirals out
Perspective expansion
Potential realized right now

We deceive ourselves, abandon ourselves to prostrate the God within
Remember yourself and master yourself to become your own disciple now
Track Name: Tentacled Eye
It was the night
It was the underworld
It was all but a dream
It was awoken, dredged from the depths below,
from slumber

It hungers not but for the ultimate destruction
It reaches out to satisfy a dark consumption

It brings the night
It is the undertaker
It is a nightmare
It has broken surface
It's gaze is fixed
Blank stare

It slumbers not
The price is paid for it's disruption
It reaches out and lays to waste all that it touches
Realize
Don't let your mind snap and you will understand
all that will need to be done to bring it down

The blasphemous, surviving nightmare thing
Tentacles writhe in the ruins of man
The original, eternal, the undying
Unnameable creature bleeds despair
Look beyond fear to envision empowerment

Will of stone that can not be broken, only forsaken
The thunder trembles
Cast your might into it all

It never dies
Unless transformed, it never dies
